Re: HD8 carb issue

Not sure I follow the logic. The carb shouldn’t flood regardless of needle type, or even with no needle or piston at all. logic is very simple engine and piston movement create a intake under pressure, which generate piston displacement, the thinner is the needles the bigest is the gap with the jet

Re: HD8 carb issue

Gentlemen, short update, flooding is coming from wrong carburetor needles ... ordered new at SNG baratt in the section 4.2 they propose "SC" needles, as you can see on the picture below they are completely different from the "UM" ones : https://i.postimg.cc/8k0BkZXQ/IMG-4766-1.jpg https://i.postimg....

Re: HD8 carb issue

Good evening Gentlemen, first of all thanks for the comments, so let me precise : @Christopher : needles valves are new from Burlen. You are right for the 4 options, but I observed the same "flooding" with fuel supply disconnected :wink: Tonight I re-adjusted the jet at the same level (picture below...

Re: 4.2 starter motor wiring

Thanks for the explanation Christopher, I have already the Oil pressure indication wire (Wight and brown), so those two wire share the same connection point on the oil pressure sender right ?

Re: 4.2 starter motor wiring

Hello Andrew,

Thanks for the explanation, clear for the power lead it's connected and ok !

The red white is well connected also to the right place. So this Brown/black should go elsewhere then, any idea ?

It is the same than the one of ignition light on the speedo.

Thanks in advance

Re: Triple SU building tutorial

ok, basically either you have the right tool which is quite expensive or you don't and it is very difficult to have something aligned.

I'm curious to know if some members tried to do it, and if yes how.

The end of VSE ?

Dears, I contacted VSE for the rebuilding of my 4.2 engine, and they replied me that they will stop their activities because Tim will retire. Is anybody aware of this ?

That's a bad news !

thanks
